New Delhi: With the inauguration of the Netaji Subhash University of Technology (NSUT), the national capital on Wednesday added another technical university to its fold.

Delhi’s deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, who inaugurated the university on Wednesday said, that it will be able to educate 12,000 students with an initial intake of 3,700. The university was inaugurated two-and-a-half years after the Delhi Assembly had passed a bill for its creation in 2015.

The university will have B.Tech and M.Tech programmes along with MSc courses. “It is a matter of happiness for Delhi to get a new technical university and now the responsibility of making this university world class lies with the students, faculty and the vice chancellor. The government has done its job by creating the university, now it is over to you,” Mr Sisodia said on the occasion.

The government further said that NSUT will create specialised divisions in selected areas such as management, architectu-re, medical sciences, appl-ied sciences, energy, environmental studies, nanotechnology etc. NSUT will introduce Post-Docto-ral fellowships, Post-Doct-oral research programmes with suitable compensation, freedom and traveling grant.

“This University will adopt concretely planned and highly structured research and study programmes viz flexible and adoptive academic curriculum, industry, institute partnership for better redressal of community issues, engagement of global faculty and students with a diversified background and coherent faculty participation for a progressive development. Facilitation and development of technical incubation centres to bridge the gap between academics and industry. Instead of a closed system NSUT will be envisaging an open system by engaging alumni, experts,” it said.and intellectuals from diverse fields,” the government said in a statement.

Mr Sisodia announced that the Delhi government has asked all the heads of educational institutions of higher education that they should provide a vision of how their institution will be in top 10 of the world, and the government will not allow resources to come in the way.   

“Periodic advertisements for the above mentioned programs would be carried out time to time as per the need. Postgraduate student’s curriculum and research will be in tune with employers need for their better placement. In each department, there will be a placement cell for better coordination with the central placement cell,” it added.

The growth of NSUT and its further expansion will result in the creation of a much larger pool of competent faculty, professionals and researchers which will result in achieving excellence and would make a significant contribution towards making Delhi the ‘Knowledge Capital’ of India.
